Yet another iPhone killer, this time it’s the Toshiba TG-01.  Powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 and with a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the screen real estate is a whopping 4.1″ WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) display. Listed at 9.9mm thick, this slick phone is definitely gonna be the thinnest touch-based WM phone. Check it out.

Hot Video – HTC Touch HD Running Xperia X1 Panels

Now isn’t this interesting.  This video from coolsmartphone show how the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 GUI is ported over to the HTC Touch HD and the guys behind the video are the ones from http://www.xda-developers.com.

Gee, I’m loving it already, the GUI sure looks hot on Touch HD’s big screen.

One side note, the import version of the HTC Touch HD is around HK$6,200 (US$795) down at Sincere Podium.
